    Personal Statement Question

    Definitely mention it to show you know the Navy life and what to expect. This shows that you are quite serious about the Academy and a future in the Navy.

    Foundation 5th Year Assignment

    Update: We've gotten much more information now. He chose a school based on websites because we live in Asia (military) and visiting wasn't feasible. His grades and resume were strong. He was told that the reason he was offered a Foundation scholarship, rather than a direct appointment, is that...

    Did poorly on CFA but otherwise very qualified

    You can submit a better CFA if you repeat and do better. Keep working out and try again.

    Foundation 5th Year Assignment

    Thank you so much. This helps a lot. So do they have to go through the Congressional/Presidential nomination process again?

    Foundation 5th Year Assignment

    Hi. My son just received an offer to go to a Naval Academy Foundation Prep school. There's a list of 18 schools. They gave him no additional information and we are stationed overseas, so he is having a hard time connecting with the person who tried to contact him from the Foundation. In the...

    Florence caused cancellation of CVW

    He's staying with friends of ours, so he's safe. Hoping to figure out some way to connect with USNA.

    Florence caused cancellation of CVW

    Thanks for the encouragement, everyone. He did travel there with my husband, who is Navy, so he's trying to figure something out. So far, nothing. He's at least getting the chance to do his NROTC skype interview Stateside, while he's there, to avoid China internet disruptions.

    Florence caused cancellation of CVW

    Thanks everyone, for the advice about what to pack for CVW. My son flew to DC last night, from our posting in China, in preparation for his CVW this weekend, got off the plane and got an email announcing the weekend's events were cancelled. I understand, of course, but it's such a...

    CVW Items to bring

    I know this information must be somewhere in the forums, but I've spent an hour searching and reading posts and can't find anything other than that he won't need PT gear or a swimsuit. Is it helpful for him to have his laptop for class time? A notebook and pencil? Thanks in advance. Erin
